About the Christine Brown Trust
The Christine Brown Trust is a Charitable Trust (Registered Charity 1113727) founded in 2003 by Christine Brown (1931 - 2009) who dedicated her entire career to music and who wanted her legacy to continue for many years to come.
The Trust offers financial support to talented young musicians under 19 years of age who may be finding it difficult to meet the expenses involved in learning a musical instrument. This may mean contributing towards the cost of lessons, helping to pay for a new instrument, perhaps paying for summer school or orchestra fees - in fact, anything connected with the costs of an instrumental education.
Christine Brown was born and brought up in Yorkshire and priority will therefore be given to children who apply from her beloved Yorkshire region. Applicants must be able to show a serious commitment to their instrument as well as exceptional talent.
